My Always List: Purity

Ok.  Title of the post.  You may be thinking "He's a Jo Bro?!" 

But no.  I had this idea after looking around J.Crew.  Their creative director (Jenna Lyons, for those keeping score) comes up with an "always list" for each season.  I like that idea, so I'm blatantly copying it.

I thought I would start with the basics.  And there's nothing more basic than clean skin.  My choice to accomplish this goal is a face wash called Purity Made Simple by the brand Philosophy

I would classify my skin as sensitive and normal to oily.  This is just what the doctor ordered--if I went to a dermatologist, that is.  It "melts" away the oil without drying my face out.  Yikes.  Plus, it smells really good. 

Secret: I buy mine from QVC, just like an old lady, because it's way cheaper to get the jumbo size there.  And it lasts (literally) a year or longer. 


  1. Love it! I've been using it ever since you introduced me to it which was about 3 years ago.

  2. I had to resist from drinking the Margarita Purity body wash every morning in the shower.

  3. I do love Philosophy! I will be sporting their sunscreen, Shelter, this summer.

  4. I'm a Philosophy girl & have been using their products for many years. My neighbor came over one day and caught me w/o makeup and she remarked that my skin looked like it did when I was eleven - yes I knew her then. Being that I'm in my 40's is proof enough that it works. And yes I also snatch mine up on QVC.

  5. ann marie's comment made me smile. I've had body wash like that before-where I wanted to drink it.

  6. love this idea and love philosophy!
